The Data Standards Authority and the Government API Catalogue hosted by Charles Baird, Consulting Data Architect & Rosalie Marshall, Tech Lead for Government Data Standards Authority, GDS
An introduction to the work of the Data Standards Authority at GDS and especially to the Government API and Data Exchange Catalogue.
The DSA has been formed to improve the use of data in government by giving guidance and leadership on data standards and best practices.
The API Catalogue is one of our primary deliverables - we're looking to build a registry of all cross-governmental data exchanges, to help with data discovery, reduce duplication of effort and shorten time to market for new products that make use of inter-departmental data streams.
In this session we'll talk about the aims of the DSA and the Catalogue, how we see local government participation as crucial, and how we can collaborate with local government in the future - we'd also like to take feedback on what local government priorities around data are, and how we can better help with them.
What is the DSA and what are we trying to do?
Why another API Catalogue?
What are the benefits to local government?
How can the DSA better align itself with local government priorities?
